I was watching the video (link in description) and my first reaction honestly was to laugh hysterically, but immediately after I watching it for the second time I took closer notice. The kid's body goes completely limp. I was just wondering is he okay? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXd5_U04taY

Some of the comments say so, but I think I would have heard of it through the internet.

well the upside he could be dead, the downside he could be paralyzed.

I believe he is ok. Here's why:

His friend was probably videotaping it. If he ended up paralyzed or dead, he wouldn't have posted in online. It would just be disrespectful and inhumane to have done that.

no its a strategically thought out move, when you make a ass of yourself and mess up doing it you just lay there till everyone leaves then you get up.
but yea i think hes fine

Wow, what an idiot. but I hope he is okay. I couldn't find any news on his status so who knows.

Nah, I am pretty sure he's just having fun.

It looks like he was paralyzed,.... If he was dead, his family/friends would've taken it down from youtube already

I see he's living up his life, if he lives, he should do more stuff like that but if his dead, I hope he's in heaven

Well the spine is pretty sensitive, so it's just appropriate for him to look limb like that... It looks like it really hurts though.. :/ Poor dude..

That should be a question on the application for Stanford... "would you ever jump onto an insecure object that may become unstable, cause you to fall, and damn near break your spine in the process making the school look bad for accepting you in the first place?"
